Petition Closed

Mr Smith made a public statement in the press about benefits and the amount people are expected to live on. I'd like him to demonstrate his commitment to what he stated and show us how he would live on £53 a week for a short duration of 6 months. At the end, I'd like to see if he's changed his opinion.

Letter to
Work and Pensions Secretary Iain Duncan Smith
On behalf of all the UK workers who are currently out of work and who are struggling to make ends meet, I'd like you to demonstrate how you would live on £53 per week for a short duration 6 months unaided.
